  1. Yeah have seen a few people say that! Going to wait until i can get the rs up on a hoist tbh. getting sick of rolling around on the ground with no light haha
  2. Nice, i did assume that was the case ( i noticed from a trip to pick a part that the linkage did change slightly in the gc/gf chassis over the years too. I picked up a full v7 wrx shifter and linkage et (new bushes too) on the cheap so im going to run with that (and hope it fits....)

    Bonnet Latch

    That is the end objective.

    Bonnet Latch

    Possibly a really dumb question but having issues with my bonnet staying locked when on the motorway and my mechanic mentioned it might be a good idea to swap latches just as a check the current one isn't just worn out (30 years old now...). When bolting in the latch on the bumper should i be pushing the latch as far up or as far down as i can (if that makes sense haha). Cheers
  5. I've got 850cc fiveoh side feeds in my RS and haven't had any issues (got them cheap asf). Its still on a base tune on the link but idle is still smooth (runs a bit rich though). Getting it on the dyno once back from panelbeaters but no complaints/reservations from my tuner at this stage at least. His commen was the new ECUs (G4+ etc) are sufficiently modern enough to deal with bigger side feeds if i wanted to stick with them
  6. Does it blow hot consistently? If you try bleeding again, just check that the heater hoses are getting hot as well during the process. i had that issue once in getting rid of an airlock
  7. Do your heater hoses warm up as the car comes up to temp?
  8. Rust in the floor of the RA so looks like my cert is gonna be a *tad* more expense then I had hoped🙃
  9. Ah, i mightve misread your initial post. I actually have a set of v5 rear hubs that fit the 2 pot rear caliper - i tried to fit them to my BC but they wouldnt fit the rear end so im guessing they are r180 ones. That might sort out your dogbone adapter issue if you want to move away from that.
  10. An option for the rears would be to try to get the r160 nz new wrx hubs that came with 2 pots. DBA then do a rear disc that suits the brembo rears without doing anything dodgy to the handbrake.
  11. Ah thats good to know. I think i'll just try to work with a later gc8 one or be/bh linkage rather than look for anything newer just incase.
  12. Cheers, your comment around the bf5 is interesting. Would it depend on the actual gearbox in the car as well? like i haven't got the original RS box for sure.
  13. Didnt realise this either untiil i tried to install my short shift kit haha. The one in my RS has the bolt going through the linkage rather than the gear stick. its workable, but i'd rather move to newer parts, which are in essence set up in reverse. Still havent figured out how to post images but this trademe link has the diagram for the older style: https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-parts-accessories/subaru/gear-boxes/listing-2587773565.htm?rsqid=d8a60ee179ef48a49794714639a80bea-004
  14. Hey guys, Wanting to move to the newer style 5 speed linkage as i udnerstand there are 2 types for the gc8. Are the linkages compatable with all 5 speed gearboxes? My RS currently has the older style linkage but the bushings are shot hence decision to move to the newer style linkage and change out bushings while im at it. Cheers
  15. Should be able to get away with just using your old intake manifold as your loom wont plug into the throttle body. Good opportunity to do ignitor delete and run later model coil packs too and then you'll know those will fit as well.
